**While we are still renting the Mansion out for events, due to COVID, we are restricted either to no more than 40 guests inside the Mansion or 70 guests in our outdoor space. We are hopeful that more restrictions will be lifted and we will be able to accommodate more people as a vaccine is implemented, but we have to follow City of Salisbury and State of Maryland guidelines for capacity. This will be updated as the City and State update their recommendations. Please also note, that as of right now, masks must be worn while inside the Mansion, unless seated at a table. The same rules governing restaurants apply to our venue.**
Poplar Hill Mansion is the perfect place for your elegant and intimate occasions. Rental includes the entire first floor of the house, kitchen facilities, back yard and gardens. Flatware, china and glasses are also included in the rental prices. There is an additional charge for table linens. PHM has modern conveniences such as central air conditioning and heating, modern ADA bathroom, a newly remodeled kitchen (with sink, double oven, French door refrigerator, and commercial dishwasher), a sound system, and WI-FI.
The Fire Marshall stipulates that no more than 97 people may be in the Mansion at any given time. Realistically, the Mansion seats about 75 people comfortably, divided among the three major rooms on the first floor. Most larger events/parties use the outdoor space, which accommodates approximately 120 people and use the interior of the Mansion as a transitional space for a cocktail hour, candy bar, buffet line, or other use. (See COVID restrictions above.)
The difference in prices reflected below, are the time you are allotted. For all parties and a wedding ceremony you get 6 hours of rental time total; for a wedding reception there is more flexibility and you are allotted more time on the day of the reception for set-up starting as early as 8:00 am; for a full wedding, you not only have the all the time on the day of the wedding, but you also get time the day before for rehearsal and set-up.
We always recommend that if you are interested in pursuing PHM as a venue that we set up a time for you to come in and tour the facilities to be sure that they will meet your needs and we can meet in person to review any questions. We can set up a tour at your convenience, including evenings or weekends (we are open every Sunday). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
